Ports Seafood, Inc. was born in October of 1993, the result of owner Timothy Ports picking up the pieces of a company he had been working for since 1987. Tim, being especially unemployable, decided to take a run at doing a company his way, so along with 6 or so other pirates, carved out their niche from a dark corner of Pier 28 in San Francisco. At that time, quality seafood was hard to come by, particularly when combined with quality service. Over time, a philosophy embracing sustainably caught and cultured seafood evolved, as issues of over-fishing and wasteful resource management became more prominent.
Today, Ports Seafood operates out of a state of the art facility in the Bayview District of San Francisco. As the company has grown, so has its ability to accommodate the ever changing needs of an expanding customer base. We employ seafood professionals; people who know and understand the seafood industry and understand our relationship to the food service industry. we believe that properly handled product, from fishing vessel to your door, is our best advertisement.
